#OctPoWriMo 2018 Day 26–A Sonnet for Today

October 26, 2018

insideout

A Sonnet for Today

How can he tweet such evil words and lies

provide weak men a reason to be cruel

ignore the world of suffering and cries

destroy the earth condoning fossil fuel

damn immigrants to live their lives in fear

and women to be subject to abuse

conduct a ship of state he cannot steer

his words a flood of racist acts unloose?

Though we were taught respect for heads of state

to revere acts of love and pure compassion

it seems to love this world is out of date

and caring for the weak is out of fashion

We’re now immersed in evil there’s no doubt

our world has turned completely inside out

 

Prompt: Inside Out

Form: Sonnet

  1. so sad to have no doubt who this is about 😦

  2. The sonnet form really suits your talent for rhyme. The form keeps it from seeming blatantly political and helps us see it in a more global light. Love it.

  3. I like this. Sonnet put to good suse.

  4. put to good use. I hope we can keep in touch. I have a blog on WordPress, rolloverbard.com
